Running With Children
Participants who are 13 and under must be accompanied by a participating adult (18+). Wheelchairs, strollers and pushchairs are permitted on course however please note that the terrain on the course may vary. (Hills, roads, pathways, grass, unpaved trails). If pushing strollers or wheelchairs it is important that the head of the participant in the stroller or wheelchairs is above the bubbles at all times. Note that bubbles at bubble bogs will vary in height and it is the responsibility of the person pushing the stroller or wheelchair to mind the safety and comfort of the passenger. The Medicine Hat courses will be a 5k course.
Faster runners please keep to the left when running through the bubble bogs. Participants that are walking and with strollers, etc keep to the right. If running with small children it is a good idea to hold children's hands as you go through the bubbles. No stopping in the bubbles, if you stop in the bubble you can be hidden from others that are running through the bubble bog. Please at all times have your race bib attached to you as this is how we know you're a participant in the run. If you need assistance on the course look for race volunteers and ask for assistance.
